Vous, ses cheres Compagnes,
Vous, ses chères Compagnes,
Laissez couler vos pleurs ;
Laissez couler vos pleurs ;
Faites de vos douleurs
Faites de vos douleurs
Retentir les Montagnes.
Retentir les Montagnes.
 
 
Apprenez aux Forêts
Apprenez aux Forêts
La funeste avanture ;
La funeste aventure ;
Que toute la nature
Que toute la nature
Partage vos regrets.
Partage vos regrets.
